A Breakfast in Paris

I’ve noticed that just about all bakeries sell a variety of pre-prepared sandwiches and other dishes. It seemed like a many people dropped in to pick up these sandwiches for lunch, or at least to eat later, but just as many opted to take them for breakfast.

Baking Bites in Paris

The French Laundry

I didn’t take my camera with me to the French Laundry, but I wouldn’t need it to remember the dinner. It was easily the best dining experience I’ve ever had. I also saw Thomas Keller, who came out of the kitchen to sign a book for some people having the special, seasonal truffle-themed menu. For my recap, I’ll keep this short and sweet and just ...
